The work environment is completly different

I usually just work with other europeans in Germany and for me it was a big step to get used to the African lifestyle. I definitely needed some time to figure out how to talk to people and how to behave for working efficiently with others. People abroad talk more strict and directly that is different in Europe.
And I really learned to improvise because you have to do that often there. But after some time it is just a great place, most of the people are open-hearted and helpful. Moreover I had no problems with safety there, the people in the village took care of their "white friends" all the time. And the people from the organisation made my first days a lot easier because they explained many things to me and helped me with everything. Without them it would be very hard to get into the community also.

Challenging, but great project experience in Belo, Cameroon

I spent three months in Belo, Cameroon in order to plan and give a workshop on plastic awareness. The workshop was a community project which I raised funds for before my trip. All in all, it was a very challenging experience because the responsibility to work by yourself and engage culturally is very high. I think i grew a lot with this experience. It sure made me a more grown-up person than I was before- traveling so far, getting to know a whole different culture and maybe also not agree on things sometimes and accept them the way they are. All in all, I loved being in Belo. I had the opportunity of getting to know amazing people and learn to plan a project, become more experienced in environmental politics and rural development, widen my personal network and get to know new forms of activism. I honestly wouldn't want to miss this experience.
